FTimes-STT Report, December 20

More than a hundred victims of domestic violence will spend Christmas in shelters for the mothers and children.

About half of those, who sought shelter, were small children, said the Federation of Mother and Child Homes and Shelter.

The organisation believes that although the number of those seeking care during Christmas has not increases; but still, cases of domestic violence can remain unnoticed because of the

Christmas festivities.

The organisation encourages people to contact the shelter in case the atmosphere at homes become threatening.

Most of those seeking shelter are 25-40-year old mothers of young children and are mostly threatened by their former or current partners. The average time spent in the shelter is about

two weeks.
